The benefit of kindness

Kindness may not be the easiest thing to do. Yet it is the right thing to do.

When you’re not sure what choice to make, choose kindness. It is always a choice you can live with.

Kindness requires no lengthy explanations or excuses. The value, the power, the authenticity of kindness are immediately self-evident.

Yet true kindness is not ever done for show or for glory. Kindness is done to lift up and enhance the experience of life for everyone involved.

Your kindness will not always be repaid. But that doesn’t matter because its value to you begins the moment you act.

Genuine kindness connects you to others in a way nothing else can. At every opportunity, give yourself the benefit of that connection.

— Ralph Marston
